I always like to switch up my skin regimen every few months. If I stay using the same products I tend to break out so I’m always on the look out for new creams as well as devices that I can include.
I’ve been using the LUNA by Foreo for a few weeks now and I am beyond happy with my results. The LUNA is a silicone facial brush for sensitive to normal skin that channels both T-sonic pulsations for deep and gentle cleansing, and lower-frequency pulsations to reduce the signs of aging. The LUNA for Sensitive/Normal Skin’s brush surface features thinner silicone touch-points for gentle cleansing, with an area of thicker touch-points grouped towards the top for deeper, precision cleansing. The antiaging surface on the reverse side consists of a series of concentric silicone waves. The LUNA reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and leaves the skin looking and feeling firmer and more elastic. It removes dead skin cells and unclogs pores of dirt, oil, and makeup residue, while enhancing the absorption of your favorite skincare products.
This product makes my skin feel like new! It deep cleans and gently exfoliates your skin. I love that it is not harsh on my sensitive skin and that I can use it everyday if I want.
Another BirthDAY in the books! So many people view turning 30 as a scary thing but I found it to be quite the opposite. Maybe it’s because my nephew told me I look more like 23 than 30 lol but I think most of all it’s because while turning 30 I also happen to be 30 weeks pregnant. This birthday marks the last “Party of 2″ and the beautiful chapter of parenthood will soon begin. I also feel so much more thankful this year. I’m thankful for my INCREDIBLE husband, my family (which includes my girls because they are not just friends to me), all the new people I have had the chance to connect & create friendships with as well as all the opportunities that have come my way. Thank you everyone for the beautiful messages & birthday wishes. Cheers to entering the #30Club!! [7.14]
BeautyCon Digital Influencers filled the tea party at the Ebell Theatre put on by icon Gwen Stefani. Gwen wanted to celebrate her line Harajuku Lovers with the whose who of YouTube. Over 90 YouTube stars were invited to high tea with Gwen Stefani where guests could meet her and her children, check out the 5 fragrances of Harajuku Lovers line, and nosh on yummy desserts and sip on tea drinks and lemonade. Gwen walked in as her parents were already there with her two youngest children. She arrived with eldest Kingston and immediately assessed the tea party. Gwen went right up to the famous you tubers, such as Kandee Johnson and Bunny Meyer, and immediately got to know them. Gwen mentioned that 20 years ago no one would have ever have thought YouTube digital stars would be so influential, or even knew how important social networks would be. She wanted to celebrate her line with the influencers of the digital world because she understands how important it is to have your own voice while creating content. Gwen continued to advocate that people need to celebrate themselves, and that we need to be proud of the creators we are. Gwen’s children had a great time, they enjoyed crafts while Gwen Mingled. Gwen made it a point to take a photo with every digital influencer who attended, she answered every Q&A, she even took the entire family and her entertainment team into the photo booth for a group shot. Gwen was the last to leave. She stayed until the party was over with her family. She is humble, nice, direct, beautiful, and down to earth – something you rarely see in a megastar. She is an example of “hard work pays off”.
Some highlights from the event included:
-Gwen spoke to partygoers about her new single with Eminem
-Her beauty secrets
-How she feels about the 20 years since Tragic Kingdom album
-What is new with her with all her fashion lines in addition to L.A.M.B
-How she handles Motherhood, and being a good mom.
-Guests enjoyed treats by sprinkles and catering by urban palate
-Guests got makeup makeovers by Urban Decay
-Guests received nail art by China Glaze
Upon entering my 6th month of pregnancy, I was having a having a hard time sleeping at night. I found myself constantly tossing and turning and just not getting comfortable. I finally gave in and decided to try out a body pillow.
Body Positioner from Simmons Kids
The Body Positioner from Simmons Kids is designed to cradle the body at every stage of pregnancy, the memory foam construction helps to reduce pressure points and offers extra support in the lumbar, tummy, feet and knees. The ThermoCool pillow cover is washable and is made of a super soft organic blend that helps to create a cool and comfortable sleeping environment for a sound night’s sleep.
I have been using this positioner to not only sleep but also for when watching tv as well as reading books in bed. I am now almost 7 months and laying on my back while doing those things is just not possible anymore so I’m so thankful to have the Body Positioner from Simmons Kids. I definitely recommend all you fellow mommy’s-to-be to check it out!
As you can see… I’ve been M.IA!
Thank you to all of my loyal followers for sticking with me and following me on Instagram (@pearls_and_paris) & Twitter (@pearlsNparis_xo) since it’s been quiet on WordPress for me.
As you may or not know already, I am pregnant!
Here is a look at our pregnancy announcement while we were away in Europe in May:
Bonjour from Paris!!! There’s 3 of us in this picture… but one of us is camera-shy until September 2015
This week I will be 25 weeks. The first few months of being pregnant really did a number on me. While thankfully I didn’t experience sickness like so many pregnant woman do, the fatigue was really bad. I just recently started getting my energy back and so I’m making sure I get back into blogging but feel free to follow me on my other social media sites as I update them a lot more frequently throughout the day. As I make this wonderful transition into motherhood, I will also be making a few changes on my blog. First – I need to play catch up. I attended so many fabulous shows during NYFW in February and never got to post about them so I will focus on that as well as get into my normal Beauty & Fashion posts and some collection previews I’ve been to but I also will add a Motherhood section. I will be posting some product reviews and suggestions for expecting mom’s. If any of you have anything specific you would like me to talk about or review – please leave a comment below :)
